It obviously sits up higher than stock, but it's perfect. Cruising in fourth, i can use the armrest and shift knob to comfortably rest my arm while driving through town. And the feel of polished wood-grain is awesome. Now i gotta get me an old-school Nardi wheel or something.
This is the feature I liked most about it once I made one. The height makes it easy to rest your arm on the arm rest and literally flick it in and outta gears.

On a side note, I got a few more in the works.

Fixed. Hopefully that clears things up.

Eh, I don't like selling on ebay. Maybe I just don't understand it, really.

Here's a few more I've been working on. Third one from the left is going to my personal one. Gonna be testing some new stuff on em very soon. Check back here for updates.

I got my knob in and installed to say the least...It's AMAZING... The craftsmanship and character is outstanding. Also, the style i have is very comfortable, smooth and natural. Most importantly, the height is perfect to rest your arm on. I will be purchasing another style sooner or later.


The grain if the wood

Glad that you're liking it. Looks good with the burgundy interior.

And for those that think they're too big and bulky, I'm trying out some new stuff and making them smaller. To get a idea of size, left is one just cut, right is the newer style and I can go smaller.

Depends on what you mean by that. To me the bigger ones fit my hand perfectly, but the smaller ones do feel good on the hand.

Did some work tonight. Really liking these smaller knobs and I hope you guys do too. They take a lot more work to make, but the end results are really looking nice. Here's a pic of (from left to right) a nearly finished "older" style, the "newer" style I shaped tonight, another smaller knob, and my old civic knob laid out for size comparison.

Very nice. I bet people will start buying these up, now that there is a wider selection. Personally, i prefer the larger ones that retain the bowling pin shape.

I love how mine looks. Im glad i got one of the first-run knobs. It's so obvious what it is, but people still ask,"Is that a bowling pin!?" and im like, "yeah.." and their like, "Nice..."

By V3, you mean the third one in the pic?

And yeah I stain nearly all of them that I do. The two middle ones are just sanded smooth and haven't been stained or finished yet. Gonna be coming out with some new colors soon.

More Skinny boy knobs in the works, as well as some new "Tall boy" knobs, so be on the lookout.

Thanks for looking!

Interesting concept you came up with. I like it. Personally I like the 2nd one from the left the best (in the line up of all the different sizes).
